The superhormone revolution has begun and DHEA is the newest substance making headlines as a powerful ally in the fight against aging. But even as huge supplies of DHEA flood health food stores and Americans embrace this superhormone as casually as vitamin supplements, what is the truth about DHEA? Who are the best candidates for DHEA therapy? And how can you harness the incredible anti-aging powers of DHEA to live a longer, healthier life?
Biochemist Stephen Cherniske has been at the center of the worldwide explosion in research on this wonder substance for more than a decade, and he, like many other doctors and researchers, has been taking it himself. In The DHEA Breakthrough, he gives you all the information you need to take advantage of and maximize the extraordinary properties of this superhormone--safely and effectively.
DHEA is the body's own watchdog hormone, produced by the adrenal glands and then metabolized to a number of other hormones, most notably testosterone and estrogen, the sex hormones. Cherniske explains the startling fact that led to the discoveries about DHEA: its production peaks at age twenty-five, then starts to decrease dramatically. In fact, by the age of eighty, blood levels of DHEA have dropped 95 percent from their prime peak. By supplementing DHEA and maintaining it at optimal levels, you can short-circuit your aging clock so that your cells believe that you are still in your twenties.
Now there is a way to rebuild and maintain optimal levels of DHEA, and the benefits can be enormous. DHEA has been shown to prevent the atherosclerosis that can lead to heart attacks and strokes; to build muscle mass while reducing body fat for a more fit physique; to regulate hyperinsulinism; to combat fatigue, to increase sex drive, to bolster the immune system, and to provide an overall feeling of well-being. After all, if you felt and looked decades younger than your chronological age, wouldn't life be great?
But studies show that just taking a dose of DHEA every day does not produce the fantastic burst of energy, vitality, and youthfulness that comes from a comprehensive stress management, exercise, and nutrition program. The DHEA Breakthrough contains the DHEA Plan to make the most of DHEA supplements. The plan includes a diet designed for our "Paleolithic" bodies, bioenergetic nutritional supplements, stress reduction techniques, and an exercise program that takes advantage of DHEA's role in easing you into the next level of performance--whether you're sedentary, a regular exerciser, or anywhere in between.
Cutting edge research, case histories of people who have used DHEA, a balanced daily program, and the latest information on the safest supplies of DHEA. It's all here in The DHEA Breakthrough, your first step toward a healthier, more energetic, more exciting life--at any age--than you ever dreamed possible.

Touted as the fountain of youth in pill form, DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is a hormone naturally produced by the body. The young body, that is; by age 85, you produce 95 percent less DHEA than at age 25. Stephen Cherniske, a biochemist who has tracked the research on DHEA for years, has compiled a handy reference to help sort out the hype from this hormone's reported helpfulness for boosting libido and immune function, improving bone density, aiding weight loss, relieving depression and atherosclerosis, and even reducing the size of tumors.
DHEA is inexpensive and readily available in health food stores or through the Web; that's about where the simplicity wears off. It's not regulated by the FDA, so recommended doses vary widely, from 10 to 50 milligrams or more a day. It's also available in both natural and chemical forms, and, unfortunately, sometimes in combination with potentially dangerous stimulants such as ephedra, an herb that has been shown to cause insomnia and an irregular heartbeat. Cherniske gives suggestions for which type of DHEA to buy and in what doses, depending on such things as your age and activity level, as well as recommended sources. He also provides a "longevity program" with suggested co-supplements, such as ginseng and vitamin B6, along with exercises suited to even the completely out-of-shape, to optimize the effectiveness of the DHEA. There's also information about the ins and outs of DHEA testing and how to analyze your results (Cherniske reminds us that "normal" often tells us nothing), and potential side effects for both women and men. Overall, Cherniske does an excellent job of separating fact from fiction about this controversial but quite extraordinary supplement.From the Publisher:
Stephen Cherniske is one of this county's premier researchers in DHEA. He was studying and testing DHEA years before most of the currently touted "experts." Additionally, he is living and breathing proof that a sensible, tailored lifeplan - - including DHEA - - can make an amazing contribution to health, outlook, and appearance. Reading DHEA BREAKTHROUGH is like being in the same room and having a conversation with Stephen: his voice, energy, charm, and recommendations are immediate and tangible.
